Slightly late for this advice now, but they make mounts to hook a camera onto your handlebars. You could then point it back towards yourself and shoot video of yourself riding. Or point it forward and follow your husband while he rides. Or photos via a time lapse timer.

Don't try this if you'll be mountain biking on rough trails, it may not end well for the camera.

for on-bike shots, gopro is where it's at. You can get some surprisingly good shots from that thing and definitely ones you could never get with a real camera

When I ride, I just carry my Olympus XA in my pants or jersey pocket.
